Maybe it's just that there's a deadline this year when there wasn't in years past? One of my Professors got his grades back in like late February last year. With a deadline, fine, and public shaming, I feel like there's a good chance he comes in earlier, if not by the deadline.


At UVA there has been at least one instance where the professor blew the deadline, and apparently had no plans to grade them in the near future. The Dean and a few other professors had to step in and grade them themselves. I don't think it was a 1L class, but still.

Good times.

Pubic naming and shaming and fines could have a massive unintended consequence: professors would have an incentive to stop carefully reading the exams and use an impressionistic grading method. That would increase error, both up and down, which is bad for so many reasons.

As it is now, only a professor's conscience keeps him from adopting an impressionistic grading method even without a deadline. But...shame and fines versus conscience...that's a fair fight.

I still have yet to get a single grade (except for pass/fail LRW), and our second semester classes started today. Wtf.

Thanks. It feels kinda surreal. I was worried that I'd get a B in it or something. The class I thought I did best in, Contracts, turned out to be my worst. This site is really the shit... it gives very clear advice on how to really own the law school application process, as well as law school itself.

No I knew it was bad, and I know it's significantly worse than my other 2 exams... Just didn't believe it was that bad.

They would use small brushstrokes, primary colors and open composition?

DingBat, wherever I go, there you follow. You must have a thing for me.

Do I stop responding to you so you'll go away? To I hunt you down with an ax?

You really searched google for these stupid pics? Did you write a draft first? Did you jack off after you hit submit?

You pointed out that I misspelled "impressionistic" in my second-to-last sentence?

Or are you not aware that the word has two definitions?

Is your LSAT score reported in your profile your actual LSAT score? I really need to know this...

Straight C? Not a C+? Everybody has gotta get a C sometime. I know a guy who ended 1L with over a 4.0 GPA and he got a C in one class second semester...

How bad did you think it was gonna be? How were your predictions on your other exams?

Keep it in perspective...a C at NYU Law isn't gonna tank you...part of the benefit of going to NYU Law.

It's literally just one class. Not to say you shouldn't feel horrible--of course you should. But you still have tons of options in front of you, so don't let it affect your second semester performance.

Do you have a sense of what the problem was? Can you fix it for your second semester?

I googled to see if I could find any other definition of impressionist. I just checked again and I am wrong about impressionistic, and I apologize. What you wrote does actually does make sense (but in all fairness, you have a history of misusing terms).

Again, I was wrong and I apologize. Now back to our scheduled programming

I don't need an apology. I don't care. But I'll accept it anyway. Just stop nitpicking. It's not cool. And you're making InGoodFaith and many others upset.

So I've learned that 2 out of my 3 grades are up. Should I check, or just wait until the last grade becomes available?

If you have my self control, you've probably checked already.

I'd wait unless you know your professor is a notoriously slow grader. If I had more self control, I'd have liked to have all three of my grades before checking.
